418,570 Toyota Vehicles (of all types ) recalled, 150,000 of which were in the USA

3,800,000 Ford trucks recalled: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news0..._continue.html

900,000 GM Trucks:
http://www.caranddriver.com/dailyaut...g-pickups.html

Dodge has had recalls, but I did not find any summary numbers and didn't feel like totaling them all up.

I'm betting if you bump the total trucks recalled against the units sold, there's still a big gap....

I'm really not trying to product bash, but if you're going to pick on one, you might as well compare those numbers to the rest of the field rather than just grab an isolated number.

You also have to figure that each company probably has its own standards for what it considers recall-worthy. Toyota has TSB program that is pretty comprehensive as well. I've driven Toyotas and Fords mostly, and really (knock on wood!) never had a bad experience except with my 97 Explorer. Of course, my 86 escort hatchback was a work horse - nothing could kill that thing! LOL!

I'll admit that I did not read the link but..

Who has the market share?

Last I knew it was Ford then GM. Ford is less $$ than GM.

I'm not to happy with my present GM. Wondering about Ford.

Would like to stay away from diesel as I've been there and done that for many years. Not many choices at 300 + HP.

My MOPAR was OK but I couldn't do another in that body style.

Not many choices left.

I'm betting that under 300 ponies the foreign trucks have it, but over 300 it's the American trucks....for the time being.

But I'm really just guessing based on what I see driving down the road every day.

Of course that may have some regional relationship too. What self respecting redneck wants to be seen 'drivin wun u dem dar Tie-Otas"?

Just the beggining for Toy. Nearly impossible to have such explosive growth and not knock down the hurdles along the way. JMO.

Wife and I got a new Honda Accord about 4-5 weeks ago.

We have had the salesman call to follow up on how the car is doing, Customer Service for the dealership has called to see how the sale went and if the car is doing fine, and Honda Corp. of America has called to follow up on the sale and see how we like the car!

Do any AMERICAN auto makers have similar "follow-ups"???

VERY impressed by all the C.S. so far!

Regards,
